Israeli director Rama Burshtein provides an intimate look inside the private world of Tel Aviv's Hasidic community in the film `'Fill the Void," which premiered this weekend in competition at the Venice Film Festival.
Brian De Palma and Terrence Malick are among 18 filmmakers competing for the coveted Golden Lion during the 69th edition of the Venice Film Festival, which runs from Aug. 29-Sept. 8 and opens Thursday. In keeping with recent tradition, a secret film, the 18th entry, will be announced at a later date.
A Hasidic Jew herself, Burshtein said she wanted to create a portrait of family life within the community without presenting it in conflict with the secular world.
`'The Orthodox world is so interesting it does not need to cope with the secular," Burshtein told a news conference Sunday. "It can be very interesting and the drama can be very strong inside."
